If you haven't been to the Westcliffe Restaurant do yourself a favor and go, you can't go wrong. On Thursday for lunch they have a special which is corn beef and cabbage or a roast beef dinner, both are great. My usual is a double beacon cheeseburger with the works, it is great but on Thursday you can only get... More

Very busy spot. Went at 1230, you fill out a paper with what you want and give it to the guy. He reads it back to confirm. You go to the fridge and grab yourself a drink while you wait. We received our food around 1325. I had 2 piece fish and chips which was amazing. My friends had bacon... More

A true old fashion diner serving tasty cheeseburgers, fries and shakes. Simple food, but oh so good. A Halifax icon.

Me and the guys from work go here every few weeks, we get the same thing every time because straying from what we love might lead to disappointment. The Bacon Cheeseburger with the works/fries and a drink for about $7-8. The bacon is usually many pieces not just one or two. When you arrive you take a chit from the... More

We ate at Westcliffe July 28, 2016. I grew up in the area so was familiar with Westcliffe, but I had not been in to the restaurant in over 30 years so the owners had changed. Honestly though the food, the atmosphere - everything about the place is still the same. It is like it just stayed the same all... More

Drop by for the great food! This restaurant is not fancy, but has a great feel. The portions are generous and delicious. I had a burger and fries. This is good old fashioned fast food that is hard to find these days. Write what you want on a piece of paper that is handed to you and they'll cook it.... More

Great food, at a very cheap price. Service is friendly and feels very old fashioned. Can't say enough good things about this diner.

Reliably consistent food. Decent portions, lowest prices in the city. Westcliffe is a timeless classic with cops and construction workers and hipsters and professionals and locals and downtowners all coming for quick, cheap and satisfying eats. Great job Westcliffe!

I have been to Westcliffes many times. I no longer live in Halifax, but we make sure to go there every time we are in the city. The food is diner food, made by Bev on her grill, in front of you! Different members of my family have different favourites there, from the bacon cheeseburger, fish and chips, and my... More
